OUR FEET ARE IMPORTANT!
There is nothing worse than a day spent city-walking that ends with blisters, an achy back and shredded toes.
A few years ago, I was hiking the New York City streets with my kids. They of course had their big-comfy made for anything – sneakers on, but GOD FORBID I wear a big old Pair of tennies with my LILLY shorts….I instead had a new pair of “walking” sandals on. Long story short, I ended up setting those shoes next to a trash bin.
THERE is not shortage of CUTE sandals…I love Jack Rogers….
…and ALL the girls…..
and …of course TORY….
and I do so love my Ballet Flats….
You would think in NEW YORK CITY…shopping capital of the world I would have shoes stores out the wazoo…but I kept coming up short. Walking down pristine Madison Avenue and desperate to just have something on my feet that did not rub the blisters I stopped into a store and sled them to please sell me the window display flip flops! So, I bought a pair of 50 cent flip flops for $20 and past the likes of Kate Spade and Tory Burch. Twenty blocks later I as the hip slamming caused by nothing but a thin piece of foam between me and the cement….I once again stumbled into a shoe store.
This time, I hit GOLD when I discovered what has become my
GO TO summer city and everywhere else walking shoe….
THE FIT FLOP!
I now have a few different colors but always gravitate toward the metallics…
This summer, I got these Beauties from J CREW, which I ADORE..
…but for long hours of walking..I still swear by the FIT FLOPS. …
Once upon a time I would not be caught dead in anything but a ballet flat…but these may not be the best choice when if comes to ALL DAY walking …these sandals keep my feet and me …..happy...
